Reading Group - latest papers

Meeting Time: Mondays 12:30-2:30pm
Meeting Place: Tasc 8002

The overall goal of this reading group is to keep up on the latest and greatest graphics (& related topics). I was hoping to get together once a week to talk about a paper that seems interesting. I was envisioning rather a discussion group then a presentation, but I am flexible. The discussion group only works, if one has read the paper ahead of times. Then problems and thoughts about the paper can be discussed.

Here is the main material we want to go through:
